CITY ON THE MOVE

Amman is a crazy place of nearly crashing cars, colourful crowds of people and a sprawling dusty landscape. It’s all here and it is one of the few places in the world where a taxi is good value for money and the only practical way around. Amman is the gateway to all of the fabulous Kingdom of Jordan.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:ANCIENT CAPITAL AND CIVILIZATION
  • Cons:DUSTY AND OVERCROWDED
  • In a nutshell:LARGE MODERN CITY WITH AN AMAZING HISTORY

    Nice tips -- I want to hear about the border guard story though!

    Thanks for these tips-especially the car-hire. We will be visiting Jordan in Feb/March 2010 so I am collecting tips.

    Finally, the web link for Dallah works! Thanks again. BTW...the Crowne Plaza was not bombed in 2005. It was Days Inn along with the other two I mentioned previously.
